TSA uproar moves to Capitol Hill for TSA Demo Grope

What an uncomfortable, embarassing meeting was held on Capitol Hill. The House wanted  the TSA to show them their Groping and patdowns procedures. Many there could not watch they demonstration, they were too embarassed. It was like watching a rape.

After the Holidays, TSA procedure should be the first order of business. The TSA should be ordered to cease the desist the groping. New ways to deter terrorist must be put in place. I suggest using profiling. Profiling works most of the time. We are at war-we profile at war. You know your enemy.

Any other idea is that everyone is interviewed. This is done by the Israelis with great success. If you dont pass the interview you dont fly. In Israel where terroism is a way of life, their TSA profiles and interviews. No more manhandling American men, women and children.SHAW

From Politico-The uproar over new TSA screening procedures expanded from airport checkpoints to Capitol Hill on Monday, as the Democratic and Republican House caucuses convened a rare House-wide staff briefing on the new procedures Monday morning in the Capitol basement.

The briefing came as a new Washington Post poll shows that half the American public opposes the controversial enhanced pat-downs, the paper reported Monday. The poll also showed that almost two thirds of Americans – down from 80 percent earlier this month according to another poll the administration has widely cited to defend the policy — support the use of digital scanning machines at airports

The enhanced pat-downs that have sparked passenger complaints are used as secondary screening as part of a new TSA policy that went into place earlier this month.

The comprehensive briefing of House staff, by a TSA deputy, covered everything – the threat from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, screening procedures, pat-downs (standard and enhanced) – “the whole works,” one House staffer who attended the briefing told POLITICO.

“The dumbest part: they did two pat-down demonstrations – male on male, and female on female,” the House staffer said. And they used a young female TSA volunteer “and in front of a room of 200 people, they touched her breasts and her buttocks. People were averting their eyes. The TSA was trying to demonstrate ‘this is not so bad,’ but it made people so uncomfortable to watch, that people were averting their eyes.”

“They shot themselves in the foot,” the staffer continued.
